Kanye West's fashion line Past Tell could go up for sale on the Internet at any moment. Any delays in launching are only because, as Tim Blanks explains in this month's Canadian Flare, Kanye is "acutely aware of his responsibility to offer only the best." As such, Kanye has — after working on the project for more than a year — only created four pieces as part of his line. They include three articles of clothing. And a belt. Blanks reports that Kanye wore these items to the shows in February and March.
So absorbed in fashion is he, Kanye cleared his schedule for an entire five months, starting in February, to work only on clothing design, including the range of sneakers he designed for Louis Vuitton. This is not, Blanks informs us, simply a case of Kanye attaching his name to a product, but a return to his childhood passion. Wee Kanye, you see, loved to draw shoes. "Nobody — not even girls — loved clothes as much as me," West says. "And even now, the girls I go out with, I take them to the Pierre Hardy store and say, 'Why don't you wear these instead of Vans?'" Kanye won't even tour until the summer, so he can continue perfecting his garments and perhaps soon end the world's torturous yearning to wear them at last.
And one more thing: Not only does Kanye care deeply about attiring himself, the women he dates, and the world, he cares about how you see him. For do not misconstrue arrogance for his own self-belief. "I don't have the traditional false modesty a celebrity's supposed to have," Kanye explains. "I can't lie to anybody about the way I feel about myself; I'm too dope. I'm super-dope."
